    For EMS and registered airmail, when packages arrive in the destination country, they will be delivered
    by the local postal service of the destination countries.

  • Maintenance of 3D printed plastic items

    The majority of Monocircus' 3D printed accessories are made in nylon plastic.
    Nylon plastic material is slightly flexible and relatively strong.
    Most of the colored products are produced in white nylon plastic material
    and are hand-dyed in the various colors afterwards.

    To maintain and clean our plastic items, dilute a little bit of dish-washing detergent in water
    and with a soft toothbrush, gently brush and clean the affected area.
    Rinse the detergent off under running water and dab the item gently with kitchen paper or tissue paper
    to remove excess water and then leave the item to dry in the shade.
    Please do not leave the item in the sun and also keep away from high heat.

    After use, please store the item in a cool, dry area, preferably in a box to keep it away from dust.
    For metallic parts, it is advisable to wipe the parts with cloth to maintain their sheen.
    Should you have any allergy reaction to the metallic parts, please refrain from use.
    Especially for delicate design pieces, bending or pressing the items may cause them to become brittle and break.
    Should you encounter any problems, please do email us.
    We truly hope you will enjoy Monocircus' uniquely different 3D printed creations!
